Don'T Be Afraid To Make Mistakes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don't be afraid,
To make mistakes and move on.
Admit them to be made
And that you were wrong.
Don't be afraid,
To make mistakes and move on.
Attempts to keep them hidden,
Will not see them gone.

Everyone stumbles,
To get up from a fall.
Some may look around,
Like a child learning to crawl.

No one lives escaping,
Embarrassments to face.
Some see these as lessons,
To learn each day to take.

Don't be afraid,
To make mistakes.
And move on.
Don't be afraid,
To move on....
From those mistakes.

Don't be afraid,
To fix mistakes that you have made.
If not they'll stick like glue,
To stay and bother you.

Don't be afraid,
To fix mistakes that you have made.
And move on.
Don't be afraid,
To move on....
From those mistakes to learn.
